If Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton had been taking any of three common NSAID medications for the aches and pains that accompany long days of globetrotting with Prince William, the chances of their being a little Prince George and little Princess Charlotte would have been greatly reduced.

New research revealed at the European League Against Rheumatism Annual Congress found that many women actually stop ovulating after taking just 10 days’ standard doses of diclofenac, naproxen, and etoricoxib.

Only 6.3 percent of women in the study who took 100 mg of diclofenac daily, 25 percent of women using 500 mg of naproxen twice a day, and 27.3 percent of those taking 90 mg of etoricoxib (a cox-2 inhibitor) once a day continued to ovulate — compared with 100 percent of women in the control group.

This is big news for women of childbearing age, and might indicate that these very effective pain relievers are doing more to your body (male or female) than you recognize.

After all, if they can cause the endocrine system to halt ovulation, what else might they do?

Our advice? Limit your intake, and get relief of minor aches and pains with:

• An Epsom salt bath (mild temperature for best absorption of muscle-soothing minerals)

• RICE — rest, ice, compression, and elevation — to ease a sore knee, twisted ankle, or other such hurts

• Alternating ice (10 minutes) with heat (20 minutes) to reduce inflammation and promote blood flow

• Gentle stretches to release muscle tension and increase flexibility
